ED-580XT / ED-580T
ED-580T and ED-580XT have the G-Lock incorporated at the distal end.
The G-Lock, containing the forceps elevator and the contact section, enables the guidewire to be fixed firmly with simple operation of the forceps elevator.
In addition, the specially designed round shaped forceps elevator leads to less damage to the guidewire.
The inner tube of the instrument channel uses an optimized material to make a device to be inserted smoothly.
This feature enables exchange of devices with less stress.
The combination of new G-Lock and smooth inner tube helps offering efficient ERCP procedures.
Improved 1 : G7 control portion and advanced force transmission
The G7 control portion has a rounded surface design to fit in the hand, and its button layout makes intuitive operation possible.
Advanced force transmission
With the optimized elastic material and the elasticity gradually increasing from the distal end to the control portion, the insertion portion enables more efficient transmission of pushing and rotating forces as intended by the physician.
Improved 2 : Increased angle of endotherapy devices
The forceps elevator design offers increased maximum angle of endotherapy devices.
The movement of forceps elevator has good response for forceps elevator lever movement.
Improved 3 : Easier distal end cleaning
The single-use distal end cap permits easier brushing access to the distal end of the endoscope. In addition, the elevator wire is sealed to allow easier cleaning.
